Em                         Am
I ache for the touch of your lips, dear
         D7                         G
But much more for the touch of your whips, dear
B7                       Em     Am
You can raise welts like nobody else
      B7                     Em
As we dance to the masochism tango

  Em                         Am
Let our love be a flame, not an ember
         D7                     G
Say it's me that you want to dismember
B7                  Em         Am
Blacken my eye, set fire to my tie
      B7                     Em
As we dance to the masochism tango

        Am        D7              G
At your command before you here I stand
   Em             Am
My heart is in my hand

     Ebdim7             E E7
It's here that I must be
           Am           D7                G
My heart entreats, just hear those savage beats
    Em             Am         D7               G   B7
And go put on your cleats and come and trample me
     Em                          Am
Your heart is hard as stone or mahogany
         D7                        G
Which is why I'm in such exquisite agony
   B7                     Em         Am
My soul is on fire, it's aflame with desire
         B7                     Em
Which is why I perspire when we tango

              C     C7
You caught my nose
In your left castanet, love
I can feel the pain yet, love
Ev'ry time I hear drums
               C     C7
And I envy the rose
That you held in your teeth, love
With the thorns underneath, love
                   Em    B7
Sticking into your gums

     Em                       Am
Your eyes cast a spell that bewitches
    D7                        G
The last time I needed twenty stitches
   B7                       Em             Am
To sew up the gash that you made with your lash
      B7                      Em
As we danced to the masochism tango

           Am        D7                  G
Bash in my brain and make me scream with pain
     Em           Am        Ebdim7               E E7
Then kick me once again and say we'll never part
           Am       D7              G
I know too well I'm underneath your spell
    Em              Am              D7                    G   B7
So, Darling, if you smell something burning, it's my heart

     Em                     Am
Take your cigarette from its holder
    D7                       G
And burn your initials in my shoulder
B7                    Em                Am
Fracture my spine and swear that you're mine
      B7                     Em
As we dance to the masochism tango
